About Yousuke

Acclaimed landscape and garden designer, Yousuke Yamaguchi was born into the world of horticulture – his family’s plant business in Nagasaki was his childhood playground. After High School, his tutoring continued under a Kyoto garden master before a period of study in the UK, where he was also caretaker of the Japanese Garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Returning to Japan to run the family business, Yamaguchi continues to create his signature gardens, blending the traditional with the modern. Influenced by his studies both at home and abroad, Yamaguchi's approach is best expressed in his own words, "I am not a gardener. I wish only to grow alongside my garden".
